Sermons from September 2018
Unfortunately accidents and disasters get our attention in ways that normal life doesn’t. In fact, we may listen to voices we might have earlier ignored. Paul is ignored when he warns about an upcoming disaster. But the shipwreck gives him a platform to be a voice of hope.
A simple story about a shepherd and a sheep that wanders off is a powerful illustration Jesus uses to teach the heart of God. It will also shape your heart.
It is not always easy to tell when our emotions have gone out of bounds and are wrecking our faith. Elijah was a man of God, but it didn’t make him immune from struggling with this. God gently brings him back to a place of obedience.
In a surreal moment, Isaiah has an encounter with God that opens his eyes to the glory of God. That propelled him to say yes to God for whatever mission God had for him. It might impact our desire to say yes as well.
No one likes to be the underdog, yet that’s exactly why God may tap us on the shoulder to do something in His Kingdom. If you’ve ever struggled with “How Can I?” then this is an encouragement for you.
